Padmavajra in the shrine room at Padmaloka Retreat Centre with the Padmaloka community
This will help our Order offer care for the long term to our sisters and brothers in India – to support them and their families throughout this enduring crisis.
Donate now and help us work to alleviate terrible suffering and bring hope back to the lives of many Dharma friends.
The second wave of COVID-19 is causing poverty, distress and death in India. Very sadly we have lost several members of the Order to coronavirus in recent days. Currently 15 Order members are unwell to the point of needing medicines and / or oxygen. With public health supplies running low, these things need to be paid for privately. We want to send £150 to each of these Order members to give them this ability.
The Abhayaratna Trust grant team in India have let us know too that 51 Order brothers and sisters are currently unable to work due to pandemic restrictions. They need modest funds to buy food and pay basic household bills for a couple of months. We want to send £60 to each of them. We did this last year and it worked really well to relieve immediate hardship.
So we are appealing today for your help. Can you give £150 or £60, or the equivalent in your country’s currency, so that we can quickly pass on your gift to these specific 66 Order members?
If you can do this today, or help with any amount of your choosing, please give now. And please share this appeal with your friends if you think they could help too. Thank you very much.
